One moment, you have access to your tooth surfaces without any obstacles. The next, you have triangular brackets on your teeth and they are connected to one another with a wire. As for the way you care for your smile now that you’re wearing Fastbraces, well … things can seem a bit confusing. The good news is that even though you may feel overwhelmed, you’re pretty much going to continue sticking to the basics of dental hygiene and dental care. With just a couple minor tweaks for an easy time, maintaining your smile continues to be pretty simple.
Brush And Floss, Like We Always Suggest
Like before you had your Fastbraces placed, you will still need to brush and floss your smile. This will continue to act as your foundation for a healthy grin. Particularly once you have braces, it is extremely important you are thorough with your dental hygiene to prevent trapped food and bacteria.
Use A Floss Threader (If Necessary)
About that flossing: If you find that it’s difficult to thread your floss behind your wires, so you may effectively floss between teeth, there’s an easy solution: Use floss threaders. They are very simple accessories you can pick up at the drugstore that will allow you to much more easily work around braces.
Avoid Hard Foods, Sticky Foods, And Chewy Foods
Don’t eat hard foods or very sticky foods or anything that’s very chewy. Otherwise, you run the risk of damaging your Fastbraces, pulling them off, or having food become stuck on them (which promotes problems like decay).
Ask For Help!
Ask for help if you need it. This is very common, of course!
